Our Story

We love the laid-back mountain way of life, but when it comes to great food and excellent craft beer, we take our work very seriously.

Good Beer is easy to make
Fine Beer is an Art

South Gate Brewing Company was founded in 2013 by husband and wife team Casey and Lindsay Hawkins along with Brewmaster Rick Boucke.

Casey and Lindsay arrived in Oakhurst from San Diego in 2012 seeking to work and raise their family in the serenity and beauty of the Sierra Nevada foothills. The concept for South Gate Brewing Company was born from a passion for exceptional food, craft beer and the sense of community that comes with a town gathering place – a Brew Pub.

We make every effort to utilize the very best meats and produce in our kitchen. Our beer is thoughtfully handcrafted in small batches. The richness and bounty of our area, as well as our commitment to fine food and drink, will be evident on your plate and in your glass.

Our ‘Industrial Chic’ design is stylish and inviting
South Gate Dining Room

Our pub’s original dining room features a comfortable wood bar and several tables that can accommodate large and small parties alike. Our ‘Industrial Chic’ design is stylish and inviting, and, mindful of sustainable building practices, we have utilized reclaimed wood and other locally procured materials whenever possible. The large windows in our larger dining room offer a view of Deadwood Mountain. We invite you to come visit us – and be a part of our community, our family every time you are here.
